Maximilien (22) - - MAY 26, 2012
Bottled, 75cl. Golden color, with little foamy head. Aroma of malts and herbs. But taste is not what I expected. Taste was not perceptible enough. I should taste again to be sure it was not the bottle since the aroma was great...

Pyobon (933) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2014
(Bottle) Clear golden amber with reasonable white head. Rather harsh aroma of grassy and metallic hops. Light bodied and fizzy. Rather odd flavour profile. Rather harsh peppery spice notes from start to finish, with some honey and banana ester notes. Distinctive but not particularly pleasant.

dfinney23 (1681) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Kind of sweet, kind of bitter, but doesn’t really taste like anything. Better than tasting bad, I suppose, but I certainly won’t be travelling halfway around the world to get another taste.

bbertels (65) - NORWAY - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle. A somewhat flat and weak head but this give quickly gives way to a floral and nice aroma (with hints of honey). A nice, strong beer with hints of wheat.

Rasmus40 (11273) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle from Auchan. Clear golden with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, a little sugar and light spicy. Flavor is quite sweet and moderate bitter. Sweet and moderate bitter finish. 130914

gegwilson (1198) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from French supermarket. Pours golden and sparkling with a frothy white head. The taste is pleasant enough. Bitter with a little spice. I found this a bit thin on flavour, aside from some slightly metallic notes and some citrus as it warms. Refreshing and drinkable, but a bit disappointing.

Alengrin (1818) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
The name of this bière de garde promises ’good ale’... Thick and firm, snow white, moussy head, pure amber colour. Subtle smokiness in the nose, earthy, apple, pear, melon, dried apricots, sweet tobacco, iron, bit sweaty, honey, caramel and unfortunately DMS (cooked cauliflower). Rounded palate, fruity with soft carbonation, mildly sweet, bit honeyish, metallic, sharp spicy notes and something chemical in the finish, paint-like, even to an extent where it becomes wry. Everything but a good ale. Wasn’t this brewed at ’Proef’brouwerij in the past?

Botella de 75 cl de el c. Ingles tomada en julio de 2005 con fecha de cons pref para 28-11-2006. lote 20. cuerpo medio con 7.2 vol. En su momento no fue nada sorprendente, habría que tomarla de nuevo para valorarla de nuevo.

A nice balanced easy drinking light beer but slightly bitter. Not great but enjoyable.

Mooi geel helder bier, frisse schuimkraag. Smak van banaan, citrus, afdronk wat metalig, fris. Vorig jaar in Frankrijk gedronken en was mij bijgebleven, nu viel hij tegen, geen memorabel bier, wel lekker fris en iets voller van smaak dan de normale pilsners.
